Tails: Hey Mighty, have you seen Sonic?
Tails: He was supposed to meet me here...
Mighty: I don't know.
Mighty: He's probably goofing off...
Tails: What was that?
Mighty: It came from Angel Island!
Tails: Where in Angel Island could that scream come from?
Ray: You guys heard that too?
Tails: Who couldn't?
Knuckles: Right... since it's my island, I should go!
Tails: Knuckles, wait!:
Mighty: Maybe we should follow him.
Ray: Scratch that idea!
Tails: Ray is right. That knucklehead probably got himself captured.
Mighty: Well, now what?
Tails: Ray and I will fly over Angel Island and try to find Knuckles and that person.
Tails: While you go through the Island.
Mighty: I hate not being able to fly...
Tails: Well, you'll have a better chance than us.
Tails: Don't you love the air, Ray?
Tails: What are you doing...
Ray: Wishing I could be a hero.
Ray: You saw how Knuckles went in there like there wasn't a monster in there.
Tails: Yeah, but he probably got lost anyways.
Ray: Yeah, I hate getting lost...
Tails: Hey, what's that?
Ray: There's something running in the bushes!
Ray: And It's heading for Mighty!
Ray: Get the walkie-talkie! Quick!
Tails: *struggles to get the walkie*
Tails: *In walkie-talkie* Mighty! Get out of there!
Mighty: Uh, oh... too late...
???: Dude, what are you screaming about? What the world's going on?
Mighty: Have strangers taken up sincerity?
Mighty: *gasps* Oh, wow! I was so dumb to think you were someone else!
Tails: Mighty? You down here?
Ray & Tails: WOAH!!
Tails: Oh, no we're trapped!
Knuckles: Welcome to the party.
Ray: Oh, no...
*Metal Sonic appears*
Ray & Tails: Double Oh, no...
Eggman: Well, they're not Sonic, but they're something!
All: Triple Oh, no!
Sonic: Hey, Mighty! Long time.
Mighty: I saw you yesterday.
Sonic: Which really kills the mood...
Mighty: Why were you screaming earlier?
Sonic: That cliff. I fell.
Sonic: Dumb pebbles have no respect to their elders!
Mighty: That pebble is probably older than you.
Sonic: Uh, right. Where's Tails?
Mighty: I don't know.
Ray & Tails: HELP!!
Knuckles: Still don't need help! I'm independent!
Sonic: Oh, no!
Tails: You mean quadruple oh, no!
Mighty: Don't ask me what they're talking about.
Sonic: Let's Go!
Tails: This stinks!
Ray: I wanted to be a hero!
Knuckles: I want to be independent!
Tails: We'll never get out of here!
Ray: Sonic will come!
Knuckles: Yeah, I don't think so.
Tails: Quintuple oh, no!
Ray: More like Quintuple oh, brother...
Sonic: I told you it was a bad Idea to hit the guard but no!
Ray: *hits the bar*
Tails: That's not gonna work!
Ray: Woah! Oof!
Sonic: I can't believe it!
Ray: You better believe it!
Tails: Hey, what's the next -uple?
Ray: Guys, just slip through!
Sonic: Got it! Now run!
